TNA iMPACT TV Taping Results From Wednesday 7-22 at Universal Studios Orlando
Hernandez used a sit-out powerbomb to defeat IWGP Tag Team Champion, Doug Williams, then hit a running block (pounce) on Magnus. Terry stopped him with a briefcase to the face
Bobby Lashley & Mick Foley defeated Kurt Angle (TNA World Champ) & Kevin Nash (TNA Legends Champ),with Foley pinning Nash to become the new TNA Legends Champion. Both Kurt & Nash’s titles were on the line here. Foley wrestled a good bit of the match with Lashley MIA. Light went off & on, Sting was in the bleechers pointing at the ring, lights off & on again & Lashley was in the ring with a bandage on his head. He bumped both Kurt then Nash, which set up Nash tobe pinned by Foley
Kurt and Nash came out first. When the music for Lashley hit, there was no sign of him. Same thing happened for Foley. The music for Foley came on again, and this time he came out. But still, no Lashley.
Foley wrestled the majority of the match against both Kurt and Nash.
Rhino defeated Jethro Holiday by DQ when Jethro hit Rhino with a chair. Rhino got his "heat ack" hitting a post match gore. No Jessie Neil with Rhino
Tara defeated ODB, Awesome Kong & Angelina Love pinning Kong with a roll-up after Kong hit an Awesome Bomb on Cody Deaner who was ringside for ODB
MEM in ring with Kurt on the mike complaining about the tag match taped earlier where Foley won the Legends Title. He demands Foley vs Nash at Hard Justice
Next it was World Elite ‘s chance to talk in the ring (Eric Young, Bashir, Kiyoshi, Williams, Magnus & Terry), or really just new mouthpiece Eric Young….leading to…..
Eric Young w/ Bashir & Kiyoshi defeated Daniels w/ Chris Sabin & Alex Shelley when both Bashir & Kiyoshi interfered while Sabin & Shelly read magazines and the referee tried to ingore the match
Doug Williams, Rob Terry, Booker T & Scott Steiner w/ Brutus Magnus & Sharmell defeated Beer Money & Team 3D when Terry pinned Roode
That led to a brawl began with all the men in the match, then Angle, Nash, Daniels, Shelley, Sabin, Lashley, Foley, Kiyoshi, Eric Young, Samoa Joe and Bashir! Joe & Lashley were with each other. The new security was involved. Brawl stopped then started again. Ended with Daniels on the mike saying the heels wouldn’t tyake over the house they built. Crowd enjoyed this.
Christy Hemme returned defeating Sojo Bolt
Next was a contract signing for the Legends Title Match at Hard Justice with Foley and Nash in ring with Mike Tenay. Lots of talking & joking after the signing by both Nash & Foley to set-up their match at Hard Justice. At the end of course there was a table in the ring and as tradition has it, someone always goes through the table. Foley put himself through it
AJ Styles w/ Sting was defeated by Matt Morgan w/ Kurt Angle so Morghan goes to Hard Justice, while AJ Styles is not currently planned to have a match at the PPV, which is just odd. Post match Sting helped AJ to the back. Post match Morgan sorta turned babyface in a promo exchange with Kurt Angle where Angle wanted Morgan to help Angle retain his title and Morgan replied that he was going to walk out of Hard Justice as the World Champion.
